Palos Verdes Intermediate School Reviews

1 review
PVIS is a test preperation factory that benefits greatly from the upscale community that is able to send many of their kids to after school tutors. "Learn it elsewhere and we will test it here" is largely the model. There are a few outstanding teachers, most notably in the social studies department, but the math department is very weak. The model of the school is top down authoritarian, with ironically, given the weak math department, an engineering orientation. If your student is creative or drama oriented, there are little opportunities and he/she will not be appreciated, especially if he/she will not boast the Spring State testing score, which is largely the school's goal. This results in lots of anxiety driven students.
